PATIENT # 50
Hair restoration surgery patient with the use of Finasteride.
Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 3331 Total Hairs Transplanted: 7250
Baldness Class: 5
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)
This 58 year old hair restoration patient has Norwood class V hair loss and was started on Finasteride. He underwent 3,331 grafts utilizing 1-772, 2-1605, 3-548, 4-406 (7250) hairs; many of the 3’s and 4’s were probably very close 1’s and 2’s, but with his curly fine hair, we opted to keep these together. Rather than provide light coverage to the entire crown, we transplanted medium densities only to the periphery of the crown and none in the very center. This creates a more natural look if he decides to not do another hair transplant procedure for awhile.
